wat does this mean?

Well I have been getting really sharp pains from the top of my right butt all the way down to my ankle. They were jus every now & then but today I have had like 8 of them. Everytime Iam standing it makes my leg buckle & hurts really bad for jus a couple of seconds. Am I low on some kind of vitamin or something?

  • it's called sciatic nerve pain. nothing you can do about it until after the baby is born. Baby is sitting/laying on this nerve

  • if there is pressure on the sciatic nerve you could get that shooting pain running down the leg. you can go to a chiropractor. Accupuncture has been known to work, and massage, and yoga have all been known to work. back pain does not have to be a part of your pregnancy or life for that matter.
